Image Book review

When I haven’t been at the yard, or doing schoolwork, I have been reading or entertaining Harry. I have read a few books but this one I have really enjoyed. I downloaded it from amazon for free for my kindle since then I haven’t been able to put it down!! The book I called ‘Taking the reins’ from the series The Rosewood, by Katrina Abbott.

blog awesomeness!
Not mine!!

Brooklyn Prescott is starting a new all-girls school in the United States, Rosewoods. A school for very rich and famous parents to send there girls them keep them safe. When she gets there, she meets a boy, from the all-boy school down the road, Willmont Davidson, and has a massive crush on him. When she finally moves in to her dorm room she learns her new room-mate is Emmeline Somerville, the daughter of the rich parents who donated the library, is completely different and totally an amazing girl, who is so generous and will swap her community service (spending time with her boyfriend, planning dances and mini Olympics) for the laundry, so that Brooklyn can join the equestrian team and spend time with Brady. Oh, that’s another thing, she brags about some rosettes in dressage, so the coach puts her on the team only to find that she isn’t very good…

Buy this book from amazon for your kindle for free now!!!


I love this book. My friend had already read it so when I told her I had too, we discussed all our favorite things we came to a conclusion that we loved it and couldn’t wait to read the next book. My favorite part was the bit just before the dance, but I can’t give you any more info!!!          I am going to suggest this books from 10-as old as you want to be and I am going to rate it 4 out of 5, because I think it could be a bit more eventful, but I think that’s just because I like reading Adventure books.

Ideas For December #04

Todays prompt, is *changing to deep announcing voice*  ‘Do A Craft With A Little One.’    So with the help of Darcie I have managed to pull together a little craft.


We are making owl tree hangers.


You will need,


  1. Toilet roll tube
  2. Pens
  3. Coloured paper
  4. Sicisors

To start you need to fold the end of the toilet roll down.IMG_20151207_185213


Then draw eyes and beak. IMG_20151207_185513

then decorate it with wings and “feathers”


And then your owl is finished!

He’s here!

Pongo’s arrived!!!! i am sooooooo happy!!!!  I know its been like a week since but hopefully the story will explain a little. Now this isn’t a sympathy post, its an explanation. And I think that you all need a big one!

When I went to collect him, mum and dad surprised us by letting us have a ride before we took him home. Whilst we where on the ride we had a canter and during that canter, I fell of, and as you do, I got up. then passed out and fell down. All the while Emelia was cantering behind me and Rosie (the leader), was still cantering in front. I fainted again but got on and rode to the trailer like a proper rider.                         When I got home I was feeling pants, I had a stomach ache, head ache, everything.

Pongo once we got him home.


So in the evening, over dinner, Emelia finaly told the hole story. And ended up having to go to A.E where they sent me straight home to bed with a proscription of ibuprofen and lots of hot baths. So the week has gone on, agonizing pain when I sit down and head aches when I look at the computer.

But I did get back on him on Sunday and I was so glad that I did. And since then I have been riding him round the village. And he’s been such a good boy!

Pongo happily settled into his field.


I will keep you updated on the things that Pongo gets up to!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Madlin






I don’t know weather I told you guys but I was getting sent a TabZoo, and it arrived a week or two ago. In that time I have been capturing pictures of the things that I do with it.
My Tabzoo is a phone case, and you can see that I chose the tiger but they do other bright and colorful designs, so you check them out here.

My Tabzoo phone case.


5 reasons why I love the Tabzoo:

    1. They are bright, colorful, fun and quirky.
    2.                                            They have teeth on the inside to hold  your phone up (like in the bath!)
    3.           It has Anti shock padding to protect the phone,
    4.                     Its has a zip at the bottom to keep you phone secure
    5. And I like the style of the case.



Sneakily watching a film in the bath!

I think that this would be a great Christmas present for anyone who might be getting a phone or iPod for Christmas or wants a funky phone case.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I hope you like this review,              Madlin
